What we have here is a Flash infographic that clearly explains what Metro has planned to ease traffic on Wilshire Boulevard. Originally created for a USC graduate school assignment with a little help from a professor, enjoy the infographic linked below the jump as long as the school keeps the site live.

Learn how Metro’s Bus Rapid Transit Project will help Los Angeles fight Wilshire Blvd. traffic at the link below. On this separate Web site — which may not remain after I graduate from USC’s MA program for online journalism — you can see a combination of my work on this important Southern California issue highlighted with multimedia storytelling on a site with customized HTML and CSS.
The Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s proposed Bus Rapid Transit project could drastically affect traffic on Wilshire Boulevard and increase bus efficiency along the route, but full project funding has not been secured.
That’s what I was thinking as I filmed B-roll for an upcoming two-minute broadcast journalism piece on Metro’s proposed dedicated bus lanes on Wilshire Boulevard. Those lanes would be active from 7-9 a.m. and from 4-7 p.m. At the top of a nearly 30-story building near L.A.’s Miracle Mile (see the photo below), I was hoping to capture scenes of intense traffic. As you can probably see, Wilshire was doing just fine while I was up there around 4:45 and 5:15 p.m. on a Wednesday.
Sure the 360-degree views were fantastic, but my experience driving Wilshire was in sharp contrast to the lack of traffic I found and filmed yesterday. Oh well. Enjoy the photos!
Below, that’s no swimming pool, by the way. Actually, that’s the La Brea tar pits, where a bunch of Ice Age fossils were recently found underneath a former May Co. parking lot.
